Hi CaptainJack: Yes I use DS Watercolors all the time. Most of the paintings in my gallery were painted with DS Watercolors.  I also use WindsorNewton,Sennelier,Holbein, and Mission. I like the Mijello Mission paints also due to their intense pigments. But overall, I find DS is the best for me for the majority of my work. But do keep in mind that each manufacturer of paints may use the same names for their color, but can differ quite a bit due to pigment, binders etc.  For instance, I have 3 different brands of Indigo because each one creates a different effect. Just depends on what I am painting as to which one I use. 
Daniel Smith has the largest range of colors and is always adding more. They are highest quality Artist/Professional grade and many artists use them on a regular basis.  The Quinaccridone series is particularly outstanding, which I use quite a bit. Hope this helps.

DANIEL SMITH is artist grade watercolors.
